British Values in School

The promotion of British values in school

The government published its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy and the importance of promoting these values was reinforced in September 2014 . Schools are expected to promote British values and be able to show how the work done with students is effective in embedding these fundamental British values.  These new regulations have similar status to the Equalities Act, which also applies to all types of school.

We fully support the Department for Education’s five-part definition of British values:

• democracy

• the rule of law

• individual liberty

• mutual respect

• tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
